Abune Matias gave a press proclamation concerning compromise and harmony for Ethiopia. The Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church had been officially essential for the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria from the primary portion of the fourth century until 1959, when it was allowed autocephaly with its own patriarch by Saint Pope Cyril VI of Alexandria, Pope of the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria. It is one of the most established Christian houses of worship and Ethiopia is the second nation verifiably, following just Armenia, to have authoritatively broadcasted Christianity as its state religion (in AD 333).
Tewahedo is a Ge’ez word signifying “joined as one”. This word alludes to the Oriental Orthodox faith in the one entirely brought together Nature of Christ; i.e., a total association of the heavenly and human instincts into one nature is plainly obvious to achieve the heavenly salvation of humanity, rather than the “two qualities of Christ” conviction generally held by the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox, Anglican, Lutheran, and most Protestant houses of worship. The Oriental Orthodox Churches cling to a miaphysite Christological view followed by Cyril of Alexandria, the main hero in the Christological discussions of the fourth and fifth hundreds of years.
